More on how we treat veterans 

since is the topic de jour for the Progressive Blogger's' Union today (hence my inclusion of PBU9 to allow for linking this to all the other posts on the topic).

There is an AP story about the high rate of homelessness among veterans -- there are something over 500,000 and that represents nearly 1/3 of all homeless men, if I read the story right (even thought veterans only represent about 13% of adult male population).

This is an example of what I wrote about in my earlier post about our mistreatment and betrayal of our veterans.

Comments, suggestions and even rude remarks are welcomed!
